Studio 8 Architects


Behind the Scenes

While scouting a photo shoot of the new North Austin YMCA and Community Center, we stumbled upon a story that we felt needed to be told. It is a story about determination, cooperation and how architecture is playing a role in the transformation of a community.

We created two films with distinct missions; one telling the story of the North Austin YMCA and a second short with the architect’s behind the building.

Thanks to the YMCA of Austin and Studio 8 Architects for asking us to produce this film. Special thanks to James Finck, Deanna Bounds, all the staff at the YMCA in North Austin, Kencade Brown and Sara Hensley. It is a story that we hope will open up more possibilities for positive change.

Produced in collaboration with Lars Frazer as a Frazer Pogue Collective Film
